Tax of two cities

The excise and taxation office (ETO) of Rawalpindi has moved in the Islamabad High Court (IHC) against 1,300 commercial and residential units, on Murree Road, which are geographically located in Rawalpindi but on paper are still considered part of Islamabad Captial Territory (ICT). The anomaly has created a tax vacuum with neither Islamabad nor Rawalpindi able to collect taxes from the said properties.

The housing units and plazas situated between the Double Road of Shamsabad to Faizabad were originally part of the Rawalpindi district but in 1981 the then president General Ziaul Haq through a notification included them in ICT.
